A study in three large commercial UK maize mills showed that Fusarium mycotoxins, such as deoxynivalenol, zearalenone and fumonisins present at mill intake, are distributed in milling streams approximately according to their occurrence in the maize seed structure. Fractions derived from the endosperm tended to contain the lowest levels of mycotoxins. Concentrations of mycotoxins within the endosperm are also related to the particle size. However, the products derived from the embryo or outer… CONTINUE READING
